What are your picks for melancholy, lonely, time-stopping and heartachingly beautiful songs?

I'm looking for other songs that fit the same vibe as these:
Eddie Vedder - The Long Road
Neil Young - Helpless
Otis Redding - I've Been Loving You Too Long (To Stop Now)
Peter Murphy - Cuts You Up
Fleetwood Mac - Songbird
REM - Everybody Hurts or You Are The Everything or Me in Honey
My Morning Jacket - Golden or Gideon
Death Cab For Cutie - I Will Follow You Into the Dark
The Decemberists - Eli The Barrow Boy
Eva Cassidy - Autumn Leaves
Basically any song that just makes you sit with it and take a musical time-out, and gets your chest a little tight in that good way.
All genres and styles welcome.
